Anosmia Awareness Day

Anosmia Awareness Day on February 27th brings attention to a condition causing a loss of smell. Of all our senses, a smell perhaps is taken for granted more than any other.

There are many causes of Anosmia. The most common reasons are due to upper respiratory or sinus/nasal infections or diseases. We’ve all experienced a cold or allergy that’s temporarily prevented us from smelling.

However, other conditions cause a permanent or long term loss of the sense. When anosmia symptoms are prolonged or life long, many anosmics do not get to enjoy the flavor of foods, the scent of an infant, or use their sense of smell as an early warning system for danger.

Our olfactory sense has a powerful effect on memories and emotions. When we lose this sense, the impact is terrific. Anosmia Awareness Day provides an opportunity to learn more about the condition and where to go for support.
